A Russian journalist who was reportedly murdered turned up alive in the middle of a televised news conference in Ukraine about his own killing.

一位据报道遭到谋杀的俄罗斯记者在乌克兰一场电视转播的新闻发布会上活着出现,谈到了这起谋杀案。

“I’m still alive,” Arkady Babchenko said to reporters at the news conference at Ukrainian Security Service headquarters in Kyiv.

阿尔卡迪·巴宾琴科(Arkady Babchenko)在乌克兰安全局基辅总部的新闻发布会上对记者表示:“我还活着。”

On Tuesday, Ukrainian officials said Babchenko had been shot dead and that his wife had found him in a pool of blood. He is a critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his policy in Ukraine and Syria.

乌克兰官员周二表示,巴宾琴科被枪杀,他的妻子发现他躺在血泊之中。他是俄罗斯总统普京及其乌克兰和叙利亚政策的批评者。

The report of his murder started a war of words between Ukraine and Russia. It also brought condemnation from the United States and European countries.

他被谋杀的报道掀起了乌克兰和俄罗斯之间的口水战,也招致了美国和欧洲国家的谴责。

But on Wednesday, Babchenko appeared before reporters saying he had been part of a special Ukrainian operation to stop a Russian attempt on his life.

但是周三,巴宾琴科出现在了记者面前。他说这是乌克兰一项试图阻止俄罗斯人刺杀的特别行动的一部分。

Babchenko apologized to his wife “for the hell she had to go through in the past two days.” He said she did not know about the operation in advance.

巴宾琴科向他的妻子道歉,因为过去两天她不得不遭受地狱般的经历。他说,妻子事先并不知道这次行动。

Neither he nor Vasyl Gritsak, head of the Ukrainian Security Service, provided details of how they staged Babchenko’s injuries or made his wife believe he was dead.

他和乌克兰安全部门负责人瓦塞尔·格里萨克(Vasyl Gritsak)都未提供他们如何谋划他受伤或让他妻子认为他已经死亡的细节。

The surprise came as Gritsak held the news conference to announce that Ukrainian police had solved the reported killing.

格里萨克召开新闻发布会宣布乌克兰警方已经解决了这起报道的刺杀事件,让人大呼意外。

Before Babchenko’s appearance, Gritsak said investigators had identified a Ukrainian citizen who allegedly was paid $40,000 by the Russian security service to kill Babchenko. Gritsak also said killing Babchenko was part of a larger terror plot by Russian security services in Ukraine.

在巴宾琴科出现之前,格里萨克表示,调查人员发现一位乌克兰公民据传接受了俄罗斯安全部门4万美元以杀死巴宾琴科。格里萨克还表示,刺杀巴宾琴科是俄罗斯安全部门在乌克兰一项更大恐怖主义阴谋的一部分。

Babchenko said he was approached by the Ukrainian Security Service a month ago to set up the operation.

巴宾琴科表示,一个月前乌克兰安全部门找到他制定了这一行动。

“The important thing is my life has been saved and other, bigger terrorist attacks have been thwarted,” he said.

他说:“重要的是我得以保命,而且其它更大的阴谋也已经被挫败。”

Babchenko is one of Russia’s best-known war reporters. He fled the country in February 2017 after receiving death threats against him and his family. He said his home address was published online and the threats he received were made by phone, email and social media.

巴宾琴科是俄罗斯最著名的战地记者之一。2017年2月,他在收到针对他及家人的死亡威胁后逃离了俄罗斯。他说,他的家庭住址被发到网上,并收到了通过电话、电子邮件和社交媒体发出的死亡威胁。
